The food was excellent, the service good, the atmosphere peaceful and the surroundings comfortable. The only reason I have knocked a star off is because it is on the pricey side. Similar quality can be had nearby at better prices.

The breakfast for two that we had featured many small dishes spread across the table. My boyfriend and I both agree that it's the best breakfast we have ever had, with the most beautiful ambience. Favourite in istanbul!

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
